First to greet the new year
Sarah Louise Hayward couldn't wait any longer to start her life, making an early entrance to be the first baby born in Coffs Harbour for 2005.
Travelling from Lightning Ridge specifically to have their baby born at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus, proud parents, Rochelle Crampton and James Hayward, weren't expecting little Sarah until January 7. However, once Sarah made up her mind there was no stopping her, with the official time of birth 3.09am, January 1, 2005.
On returning home, Sarah will join her siblings, Nerina, 5, and James, 3. Beaming down at their New Year's bundle of joy, Rochelle and James couldn't have imagined a better way to start the year.
